Thief River Falls, MN - The 2007 World Powersports Association National ATV season is now in the books, and Team Arctic Quad Terrain Racers placed 6 racers in the top 9 spots. Jesse West led the crew to bring home a second consecutive Arctic Cat championship aboard his 650H1.

Jesse remarked about his results, “I worked really hard to win this QTC championship, and am terribly proud of this accomplishment. I couldn’t have won it though without the help of my family and friends in our West Racing trailer as well as the support from Arctic Cat. Our 650H1s are tough. I hope this second championship showcases the punishment an Arctic Cat can withstand. I also want to thank the fans who support us and come out to the races. I’ll do everything I can to put on a good show for you!”

Standing on the podium in third place, was SPI Racing’s Rory Beckman, while Josh West, brother of Jesse, took WPSA’s Pro Rookie of the Year honors after finishing 6th on the season.

The championships and awards didn’t end for Arctic Cat in the ATV division. In the SuperSport UTV class, SPI Racing’s Kyle Fiebelkorn wrapped up the top season points in his Arctic Cat Prowler XT.

“I couldn’t be much happier with how our season went,” said Arctic Cat Race Manager Ted Bettin. “The collective effort put forth by the Arctic Cat Factory, as well as our racers and teams, makes this season a success. Speed may have won holeshots this year, but when over two-thirds of the class picks an Arctic Cat 650H1, you know what machine is the most durable when the track gets rough!”

So what’s next for Arctic Cat? Bettin says, “We’re going to come back tougher than ever next season. We vowed that last year and brought home another championship this year. Arctic Cat learns from racing and that transfers to the consumer, so you can count on our machines being stronger and faster.”
